Comfy, Cozy

Last week when Maddie and Jake's school day was delayed by two hours, they were upstairs playing and decided they would dress Jake up in Maddie's pink robe and pink slippers. Unfortunately no picture exists, but they thought it was pretty hysterical.

Jake also thought Maddie's robe was SO warm and commented how he would like a robe. I was mildly surprised because Jake is like a little portable heater - the kid is always warm. He prefers to sleep in pajama bottoms only, has the coldest room in the house and still is toasty. I, on the other hand, go to sleep in a t-shirt, sweatshirt (occasionally hooded...), socks, flannel pants, sometimes slippers, have the fireplace on...and I'm still freezing.

Anyway - the other night we were at Kohl's and while Mike shopped, Jake and I went to look at sales on pajamas. Instead we found his perfect robe.

Try as hard as I could, I could not get him to go for the gray one...this turquoise robe has a race car on it and was irresistible to pass up! And he's so excited! He absolutely loves it and could not wait to wake up and show grandma and grandpa his new robe (and matching slippers!) the next morning. Then he and grandpa went downstairs in their robes and sat on the couch to watch Saturday morning cartoons.

A couple nights ago I even went up to kiss him goodnight and couldn't figure out what type of stuffed animal he'd squeezed into bed and then asked, "Jake? Are you wearing your robe to bed?" Yep. He just wanted to make sure he didn't get too cold that night.
